The Winnipeg Food Atlas is a community developed resource designed to help fix food systems issues in Winnipeg.
The online map and interactive data dashboards allow users to explore the Winnipeg foodscape at the neighbourhood, ward, or city level.
The map identifies food assets such as farmers markets, community gardens, food bank locations, and grocery stores. It also includes information on indicators of food insecurity, including the cost and prevalence of diabetes, a growing nutrition related health issue.
"It really helps to get people's imaginations going and start thinking about food as something that we plan for as a city. The Winnipeg Food Council will be using the data in our upcoming projects."
